Last weekend was the NFL draft. The Packers drafted thirteen players. All of them should play a big role next year. In the first round, they drafted an edge rusher, Lukas Van Ness, out of Iowa. Van Ness did not start a single game at Iowa, but he was one of their best defenders. In the second round, the Packers chose a tight end, Luke Musgrave, out of Oregon State, with their second pick, in the second round, Green Bay took Jaylon Reed out of MSU. Jaylon is a 5’11 wide receiver, who projects to be Jordan Love’s slot receiver. They finished day two with,Tucker Kraft, a tight end from South Dakota State.
On day three, Green Bay drafted some defensive help, but they did get Love more help. In round four, they drafted, Colby Wooden, a defensive end from Auburn. Green Bay then took quarterback, Sean Clifford, and wide receiver, Dontayvion Wicks, from Virginia. The Packers went out in the sixth and got more help for the defensive line, by drafting Karl Brooks. They used their second sixth round pick to take Anders Carlson, a kicker. In the seventh round, they had four picks. Usually they are used to help special teams. The first of the four went to, Carrington Valentine, a cornerback from Kentucky, with their second, they picked, Lew Nichols, a running back from Central Michigan. The Packers chose safety Anthony Johnson from Iowa State. Green Bays last draft choice was a wide receiver out of Charlotte Grant DoBouse.
Overall, I love this draft class. They got Jordan Love help and bolstered their defense. I do question one pick, but one out of thirteen isn’t bad. Now they just need these guys to pan out.
GO PACK GO!!
